  3. CandleImageMo was such a wonderful man, friend to all, awesome father and father in law and caring grandfather. All of us who were blessed to have known him and had MO in our lives are so blessed with his wonderful personality upbeat view on life and zest to embrace every door opened to him. We are blessed and our hearts our with his family today and in the future. Love to all as we celebrate this wonderful person.

  4. CandleImageFrom the first time we met Mo, he seemed as if we had known him for years. His effervescent personality and infectious sense of humor made him feel like a life long friend. He loved his family and his golf. He will be missed.

  5. Mo and I became friends the day we met. I was knocking on his door at night to ask for some water for a bucket I was carrying, since the water line to my house had been cut by a plumber. He had just moved into the next cull-de sac to me and we had a good laugh when I told him of my plight having no water to flush my toilet!! We recalled our first meeting many times after that. He was a good man and I enjoyed playing cards with him for many years. I send my deepest sympathy to his entire family, and he will be missed by me and many of us in Deaton Creek.

  6. CandleImageMo will be truly missed at our billiards events. Great person, sad day. Rest in peace our friend.

  7. Mo always looked younger than his years. The last time I saw him was at Afsoon’s wedding. When I met Nazzi, Mo was still living in Tulsa and Nazzi had baby pictures of Dawn that she cherished. When we were living in Davis, California, there was a time when Mo had to attend a conference at the Moscone center in San Francisco and he thought it would be efficient to stay with us in Davis and commute everyday to the conference. That idea evaporated after the first day when Mo found out that it was a 4-hour commute each way. I thought I would see him again someday. Very saddened to hear about Mo’s passing.
